Damola Ayegbayo is an Expressionist Artist with a demonstrated history of working in the arts and crafts industry.
No barrier is unassailable if you work hard, believe in, and be committed to what you love to do best. I became inspired by my late grandfather (Chief Caleb Adegoke) that was a painter, sculptor, and ceramist from a tender age, as my love to practice art increased in the university by meeting with greater like minds in the department and visiting many art galleries and art departments in other universities, also traveled to historic ancient cities and art workshop. “The name of my painting style is called ÀBÈFÉ meaning (pleaded to be loved) which is my native name. my craft is an expressionist style of art, I use portraits of beautiful black women to speak to society about morals, good behavior, love, and unity.
an image of a black beautiful woman always reminds me of how my strong mother trained and brought me up with love and good morals helping me to discover my real self, the concept of using a black woman is a great reference to my loving mother and the role other women had played in my life, their importance and existence in the world cannot be underestimated. I create my art from the things I see in my environment, whatever is wrong and I feel it’s unworthy of the society, I speak to correct them through my craft. I aim to communicate the power and beauty of black African women, realities of life, and morals, through my use of color and black beautiful women’s faces.
